“Jai Hanuman Gyan Gun Sagar,
Jai Kapis Tihun Lok Ujagar,
Ram Doot Atulit Bal Dhama,
Anjaani-Putra Pavan Sut Nama”
Lord Hanuman is loved by all of us, and is said to be the God of Kali Yuga (today’s present time period in which we are living). When we human beings feel lost in this Age of Downfall, Lord Hanuman comes to us as the guiding light.
Poet Tulsidas, who was Lord Rama’s devotee, composed the Hanuman Chalisa, consisting of 40 poetic verses. Once you read the Hanuman Chalisa or listen to it in the form of a song, something, as if magically cleanses you of all your negative thoughts and emotions, and you feel extremely good and pure. It is really miraculous.

Why don’t you keep the Hanuman Chalisa under your pillow for peaceful sleep and good dreams, minus all the nightmares? It also helps you overcome and get rid of fear.
